Barrett Jackson West Palm Beach with XPEL and The Sign Savers

Barrett Jackson: West Palm Beach Edition 2015 Featuring XPEL and The Sign Savers of Miami We arrived in West Palm Beach, Florida and the weather was beautiful, the sun was shining and it had yet to rain. The 13th annual Barrett Jackson West Palm Beach started bright and early on a beautiful Florida morning April 17th and concluded on April 19th, 2015. The first car rolled across the block at approximately 11am local time. We had plenty of face-time with previous customers and potential customers while showing off the great installation on the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 that the The Sign Savers of Miami, Florida installed. The Z06 was completely wrapped with XPEL ULTIMATE self-healing paint protection film. The following are all protected from rocks, bug acids, bird droppings and more: the bumper, hood, headlights, fenders, mirrors, doors, rock panels, roof, rear hatch, rear quarters, and rear bumper. It was reported that the owner is an avid racer and takes his vehicle to the race track, which is perfect because it is protected with XPEL ULTIMATE.   One of the more talked about cars during the auction was Herbie The Love Bug. The "oil squirter", made famous by its design to squirt oil out of the passenger side wheel well, it squirted oil on the police officers foot in the 1977 film "Herbie Goes To Monte Carlo." After the films were done, the car passed through the hands of a few private owners and museums before being fully restored to his glory days. Now that the car was in pristine condition and it is one of the last ones that are in drive-able condition, the owner decided to put it up for sale. Unlike the movie the car did not drive itself, so the Barrett Jackson drivers drove it across the block...and the car brought a staggering $126,500 USD at auction!   Statistics from Barrett Jackson: West Palm Beach The 13th Annual Barrett Jackson West Palm Beach brought in a staggering 60,000+ people! “This was one of the most successful Palm Beach collector car auction in our history,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. Here are some other interesting facts about this show: Sales from the sold vehicles: Over $22 million USD Vehicles Sold: 526 Bidders: Over 1,000, from 46 U.S. States and 2  foreign countries Media: 70 registered, from 13 U.S. States and 8 foreign countries Vendors: 73 Sponsors: 40 total Celebrity Appearances at Barrett Jackson West Palm Beach We were in the right place at the right time and caught up with WWE Hall of Fame member, Hulk Hogan! Hulk Hogan was there to help raise money for not just one, but three charities which include Connor’s Cure, A HERO Team and The Grace Project. He was auctioning a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, graciously donated by Torque Sports and Performance. With the help of Mr. Hogan, the vehicle sold for an astonishing $150,000 USD.  Show Pictures XPEL Ultimate Self-healing Clear Bra XPEL ULTIMATE leads the industry with it's clarity, durability, gloss retention and more. We stand behind our product 100%, so much so that ULTIMATE has a 10-year warranty covering defects such as yellowing, cracking, staining, blistering and/or delaminating. Protecting your car has many benefits. It will help maintain your car’s factory finish, make your car easier to clean, help the resale value of your vehicle, all while it is being protected from every day driving. Demonstration of our XPEL ULTIMATE self-healing properties Our XPEL ULTIMATE film self-heals from light scratches, swirl marks and rock chips while driving or maintaining your vehicle. During the show we use a Brass wire brush to simulate the every day occurrences that can affect the film. With the sun on the display the scratches from the brush instantly disappear. When the sun is not available, you can accelerate the healing process with a cup of warm water or a heat source. Not all Patterns are created equal At XPEL we pride ourselves on our pre-cut pattern software. By using a pre-cut pattern you’ll have less to worry about, since the installer will not be trimming the film on your vehicle. Using a pre-cut pattern the film will naturally fit without excessive stretching or contortion, which means the finished product not only lines up perfectly but is free of defects which could be visible once the install is finished. Contrary to what some may believe it’s possible to wrap edges using a computer cut pattern which gives you a much better protection and installation. With XPEL Technologies Corp., all patterns are available with precision cut wrapped edges where possible. Where a wrapped edge is not possible, for example around the parking sensors on a bumper, reverse cameras and more, the film is always machine cut with precision. You can pick and choose your coverage options. Door handle inserts, also known as door cups. This area is prone to getting scratched when entering and exiting the vehicle with rings, fingernails, etc... Luggage Area Kit. This area is prone to damage due to items being removed from the trunk.

Ferrari 458 Speciale Paint Protection Film

To Ferrari or Not To Ferrari, that is the question! Our response is always To Ferrari! This Italian Supercar is protected with XPEL ULTIMATE The owner of this beautiful Ferrari 458 Speciale wanted ultimate protection while driving the most powerful naturally aspirated V8 Ferrari ever created (so far). Yes I said ever, the Ferrari 458 Speciale makes 597bhp coming from a 4.5 Liter (4497cc) V8 engine . To be a little more specific, the Speciale makes 133bhp-per-liter, making it the highest specific output of any naturally aspirated Ferrari road car, Enzo and LaFerrari included. Now, if you are thinking of buying one or you're currently an owner of a Ferrari 458 Speciale, this little monster will take you from 0-60 miles per hour in just 3 seconds, which is .4 seconds faster than the 458 Italia. So, if you were thinking about upgrading your 458 Italia, this is definitely the car to pick. The Speciale shifts faster, turns quicker and even stops shorter. The engineers at Ferrari lightened the Speciale by 200 pounds and added a dash of clever technology to the car. The technical advances will amplify your skills, stroke your ego and make for a much more spirited driving experience. Since the owner wanted to drive this car to its maximum potential, they needed the best protection. They opted for a full front of XPEL ULTIMATE self-healing paint protection film. This includes the full hood, front bumper, headlights, full fenders and mirrors. If you look below you can see the kits we used for this magnificent car. Everything is plotter cut, meaning there is no need for cutting on the car. Please enjoy; I know we did.
